Tom is not dwelling on back-to-back losses ahead of Chester clash

Tom O’Donnell insists back-to-back defeats to Stourbridge and Hinckley has left him and the rest of the players frustrated.
Hull RUFC had ended 2019 with five straight wins, and they will look to get back to winning ways at home to Chester this Saturday.
Despite the last two setbacks, O’Donnell insists their season has been a good season with hopefully plenty more successes to come.

“I’ve said before, there are no easy games in this league,” O’Donnell said.
“One week you could comfortably beat the top of the table and the next you could have a close game against the bottom team.
“It is very frustrating having lost the last two games, nobody likes losing.
“I don’t think we should dwell on it though.
“We haven’t had a bad season so far, considering it’s the first season for us in this league for a few years and the lads are dealing with the challenge well.
“We just need to keep our heads up and treat the losses as a learning curve.
“I think the players and coaching staff are giving themselves a hard time.
“We are only 18 games into the season and still have 12 games left to get some wins in and climb back up the table.
“We just need to keep turning up each week and putting in the hard graft in.
“The key to beating Chester this weekend is about staying confident and trusting the man next to you to do his job on the field.
“We are our own worst enemy sometimes, especially when it comes to discipline. “Mistakes will happen and when they do, we need to get together, stay positive and look to the next job.”
